Last week I took an unscheduled bloggy hiatus. Why?
Because this Mama Is Losin' It. Lately I've been a Not So Stay-At-Home-Mom. And for the past few days I've been Buried With Children. My life feels as if it's been a Seven Clown Circus. All the Mindless Junque in my life has kept me from being able to Escape Into My Thoughts. I literally stand on my front porch, shouting, "Welcome to the Nut House!" That's what this place feels like right about now.
I'm Not Your Average Soccer Mom. Not by a long shot.
All I really wanna do is stop for a moment. Enjoy some Sunshine & Lemonade. There's this desperate need to celebrate my Handful of Life. (OK, my 2 girls are not really a handful. Most days.) And I really want to return to My Version of Sanity, which is hanging out with my blog pals, of course. I want to Live. Love. And Eat. And surely I have enough Pocket Change to make this happen. Heck, I've earned it over the past week.
This morning I woke up and said, "This is the Day..." Because it is. Psalm 118:24 tells us "this is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." I am taking the time to rejoice and be glad, because it's a welcome change from all the whining and sighing and busyness of late.
I've missed all of you. I really and truly have. Tomorrow I'll post pictures of where I've been...what I've been doing...whom I've been hanging out with. Because in between the whining and sighing and busyness, I've also had a lot of fun.
In the meantime, please head over to Heather's and read this post, if you haven't yet. She explains, with such grace and clarity, what I am unable to at this juncture.
I hate being too busy. And the harder I work, the worse I look.
(I think her vitamin is really a martini. Is all I'm sayin'...)
